Ben is an avid mountain athlete who enjoys whitewater kayaking and rafting, mountain biking and trail running.

In 2013 Ben came to CrossFit AVL in hopes of pushing himself to the next level as an athlete and solving his chronic injury issues. Ben soon became immersed in the Stay Active Method and is passionate about educating others on its benefits.
Ben has worked primarily in the outdoor industry and still enjoys guiding guests through the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River. Ben loves to help people push their limits while providing guidance and structure around their process.

What is the Stay Active Method?
Proprietary Tests and Protocols to Manage, Reduce, and Eliminate the symptoms of Chronic Injury and Illness
How we developed it
We spent more than a decade working closely with clients deep in the symptoms of chronic injury and illness.
Using a combination of concepts from mentors, thought leaders, and scientists from sport performance, rehabilitation, and neurology we performed clinical work in the trenches directly with those experiencing the limitations.
Through this we've developed a framework and system that helps people connect clearly with their body and guide it towards their peak physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual capacity.
How we use it
The Stay Active Method is a continual system of assessment and re-direction of your exercise to manage, reduce, and eliminate your injury illness symptoms.
We design exercises for you to complete while you learn to read the signals from your body to hold back, do more, or alter your technique to express your fullest current potential.
Then you read the symptoms in the hours, days, and weeks following your exercise to guide your lifestyle towards the fullest recovery from your physical effort.
We use the results of your exercise and recovery to choose and update your next exercise session to ensure you're creating a healthy and balanced fitness.
